Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

French printmaker and painter Pierre Louis Maurice Courtin was born on January 20, 1921 in Rebréchieu, Loiret, France.  From 1939 to 1942 he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Orléans with the French illustrator Louis-Joseph Soulas, and in 1941 he exhibited at the Salon de l’Imagerie, Musée Galleria in Orléans. 

In 1942 Courtin entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts* in Paris and the following year the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs*, where he remained for only two weeks.  He then studied at the Académie Julian* and in the studio of André Lhote and attended the Académie Ranson in 1944.

He had his first exhibition of prints at the Galerie Guiot in Paris in 1944 and the following year exhibited with the group Jeune Gravure Contemporaine, of which he was a member from 1946 to 1956.

In 1945 Courtin illustrated William Faulkner’s novel, As I Lay Dying.  From 1947 to 1951 he worked as an engraver* for the printer Georges Leblanc and in the same capacity for Jacques Villon.
